Promising Signs for 2 Local Restaurants: Community Food & Juice and Saiguette

Upper West Siders have watched with trepidation as some favorite local restaurants have been closed for extended periods without much information. Now, two of those restaurants appear to have some good news coming.

Community Food and Juice at 2893 Broadway between 112th and 113th closed over the holidays and was supposed to reopen on January 4th. Community Food has hearty American food, with a preference for organic ingredients. As the weeks dragged on, though, the restaurant’s legions of fans grew worried. Well, they don’t have to worry any more. “We did some major renovations and naturally any renovation runs into 10,000 other problems,” they told us on Wednesday. “We are ready though so we are opening Saturday February 13. We’d love to get the word out. Come hang, have a drink some pancakes/french toast. We are so excited to be back.” Check out the menu here.

And Vietnamese restaurant Saiguette on 106th Street and Columbus Avenue has been a subject of much fascination since it closed earlier in the pandemic. “I truly miss them from the bottom of my heart. (and stomach!),” wrote one tipster last month. We’ve been trying for months to find out more — the phone message just says they’re temporarily closed — but got some positive news this week. The gates are up from the restaurant “and it looks like some remodeling work is being done inside,” @twocityfoodies tell us.
